Windows 7: BSOD while computer running idle...5 times in less than 5 in one night

10 May 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Adobe Flash updates may have caused my BSODs

For the last few days I've been getting frequent BSODs. The BSOD message suggested I disable or uninstall recent software and hardware. I noticed the last 2 software updates occurred about the same time I began getting BSODs. I uninstalled the 2 Adobe Flash updates, and I've BSOD free for about 12 hours now. I will update this post if I get another BSOD.

richbirkett, please start your own thread and follow the instead of confusing us in this thread...

dapostol73: It would seem that your computer is shutting down unexpectedly during the sleep sequence. It either does so when going to sleep or when waking up. I have some Event ID: 41 critical levels as well, and they have false for sleep in progress.

So I've done a couple of things.

- Updated my Raid and Chipset drivers from Intel directly
- Re-install Nvidia Display drivers
- Turned off Sleep mode from my power settings.

Since that the machine has not crashed and been running for 24 hours. While this may be a workaround for now, I think i will try turning Sleep mode back on and see if the install of the drivers fixed the issue. Personally I think having a computer that never sleeps is not a good thing for the energy consumption.

Will let you what happens.

Sound like good troubleshooting steps. Look forward to finding out how things go when you enable sleep again.
